[ft-l] a Brobdinagian table

ok, S.B.

i was told BY ELIZABETH VAN MIEROP that the gigantic picnic table was made
by the army corps of engineers "on a binge".
OR ELSE, she said,  the hunters are obviously texans & built it big because
everything's big in texas  OR, she said, maybe our own sectiion 18
(bridge-building) engineer, mr. wolcott, built it for folly so that huge
people could hike there and dangle their feet for the first time.  i think
she's jerking me around.  i'm still working on it.  i'll let you know.
